Tommy Lasorda says he hopes V. Stiviano gets hit by a car

New, comments

The filter-less Dodgers legend got a little carried away on Tuesday.

Former Dodgers manager and current special assistant to the chairman Tommy Lasorda received an honorary doctorate degree at Northwood University in Florida on Tuesday, and in an interview with WPBF television in West Palm Beach shared his opinion on the situation surrounding deposed Clippers owner Donald Sterling.

"I've been a friend of that guy for 30 years," Lasorda said of Sterling. "It doesn't surprise that he said those things. That doesn't surprise me. He shouldn't have said it. He just hurt himself by talking too much and doing things he shouldn't be doing."

Lasorda, 86, then offered his opinion of V. Stiviano, whose recordings of her conversations with Sterling provided the impetus for his ouster.

"I don't wish that girl any bad luck but I hope she gets hit with a car," Lasorda said.
